Joe is one of the smallest characters in the game and is hailed as a versatile character with a strong zoning game and deadly mix-ups. He's viewed as a zoning and lock down character due to his chargred Shurikens as they will track their opponents. Once Joe is able charge his first Shuriken, he'll be able to maintain his charges and keep opponents locked in. His damage leaves much to be desired, but he always has the option to TAC or DHC into another character to finish the job. Perhaps his biggest strengths are his supers, God Hand is an ability that slows your opponent for 100 frames, though you can combo into it, you are unable to combo out of it but it's the perfect reset tool. He also has V-Dodge which allows him to dodge in place and Mach Speed which is Joe's version of a Bionic Arm and has easy follow up potential. This character has a lot going for him but it's not easy to unlock his full potential, with enough dedication you too can become Viewtiful.
